Micro Profanation - A highly challenging 8bit platformer has been micro'd for the ZX Spectrum

Prepare yourselves to be challenged to the point of frustration, as one of the "most difficult games of Spanish Software History" has just been converted into a micro version for the ZX Spectrum by IvanBasic, it's 'Micro Profanation' aka Abu Simbel Profanation. The third in the Johnny Jones Saga which was originally released in 1985 for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and MSX. The game was developed by Victor Ruiz and released by Dinamic Software in Spain (and Gremlin Graphics throughout the rest of Europe).

As Johnny Jones, you must explore the tomb of Abu Simbel and rid yourself of the Pharaoh's curse. Similar to Manic Minor, the game is a static multi screen platformer with various traps, moving enemies, keys and doors to unlock to progress. You'll be ripping your hair out in frustration at times, as a wrong move can lead you to lose not just one of your 9 lives but all of them. Basically if it's anything like the original game, you'll end up spawning over an enemy which will repeatedly kill you, or above spikes which you'll end up falling onto again and again.
